NextGen EPM Appointments
You should always know how appointment numbers are performing since the viability of the practice depends on them. The appointment category measures the number of appointments kept and canceled. You’ll also see the number of no shows per provider. With this information, you’ll be able to easily spot any unusual appointment trends, including those undesired increases in canceled and no show appointments.
NextGen EHR Medications
The NextGen EHR & EPM Practice Dashboard gives you prescription information, including how many prescriptions each provider submitted electronically, by fax, and which were printed out. This information lets you see how many prescriptions are issued per provider and how many for the practice in total. Also, you can determine which providers are using the most effective prescription transmission methods.
NextGen EHR Orders and PAQ
The orders category reveals how many orders have been submitted per provider, including lab, radiology, referrals, and others. The PAQ category lets you see how many of the results, including ICS, labs, radiology, or other, have been approved. These metrics are an excellent way to assess practice and provider efficiency and follow-up.
NextGen EHR Tasks
This category measures the completion of specific tasks that are not always closely tracked. For instance, you can see how many phone tasks remain open, and how many are closed, an essential element of patient satisfaction. You can also measure how many eRX tasks are outstanding and have been closed. Providers with an usually large percentage of incomplete tasks can use this information to find weaknesses in their operation and then provide remediation to specific staff members if necessary. Reducing the number of open tasks will also improve the overall NextGen EHR system performance.
NextGen Patient Portal and NextGen Share Figures
You can use the NextGen EHR & EPM Practice Dashboard to measure NextGen Patient Portal transmissions sent and received. You can also see which providers are using Direct Messaging with NextGen Share for referrals and consults, an important tool that if often underutilized. You can improve your practice management by encouraging providers to use all the advanced communications technology at their disposal.
